A common cause of confusion for new users (who have just setup Matomo, or created a new website), is that by default Matomo shows Yesterday's data. And people often don't realise they should look at Today's to see their data. So it would be valuable to guide new users and help them understand they're looking at the wrong date (small improvement to onboarding).
What do you think?
I'm pretty sure I've suggested somewhere before to select "today" automatically when eg no data has been tracked yet, or only started tracking on that day etc.
I just got tricked by this again when setting up a new Matomo instance, but seeing no reports unit I noticed I was looking at the wrong day.
I think many first time users get an impression of Matomo being kind of broken because of this.
Since I last wrote here, at least four or five people I helped tripped up about this, so I think it would be amazing to new users if we could get this into 4.0.
I also got tricked by this
You might also associate the creation date of a new site (siteid) and prevent the ui from looking previous that date or set this date as earliest possible choice
